Day 16 – Back on track?

Back on Track? After yesterdays update, it was very clear that I had lost my way, got side tracked and pretty much fallen on my arse when it came to following my fitness and financial goals.  Today was a new day and refocus my efforts I did.  I told myself that no matter what happened during the day, I had to make good eating decisions, record my food intake, make…

Day 15 – Where did it all go wrong?!?

Where did it all go wrong?!? Oh dear, that was a bad start.  I knew I was inconsistent, but I really thought I was going to go for more than 5 days without getting side tracked.  I can understand now why it is so important to focus on a goal and make sure you take daily steps to achieve it.  As soon as one part of my goal fell down,…

Day 5 – Spinning is Winning

Day 5 – Spinning is Winning Today’s training was a big bike ride around the route for the upcoming Mid Sussex Triathlon, which I will be taking part in, in June 2016.  After having read up on various riding techniques, and following my mate, I discovered that spinning my legs and keeping my cadence at around 90 rpm was actually a better way of being efficient on the bike. It…

Day 4 – Tough night, but kept consistent!

Day 4 – Tough night, but kept consistent! I am only just writing this post, due to spending 13 hours in Accident & Emergency with my little boy, from 01.00am to 15.00pm on Saturday.  As he was monitored throughout the night, I only managed to get 2 hours sleep. Thankfully, he settled and was released, so once I was sure he was doing OK back at home, I decided to…

Day 3 – A Learning Curve

Day 3 – A Learning Curve Today has been a learning curve on what I need to handle on my pursuit of goal glory!  Among other things, I am learning to deal with hunger, I am learning to like different tastes, I am learning that a lack of commitment to a task and lack of consistency to complete tasks is probably my biggest flaw, and I am learning that I…

Day 2 – Missing out on Chocolate Cake!

Day 2 – Missing out on Chocolate Cake! Welcome to day 2 of my 90 day birthday challenge, where I hope to achieve 2 goals that have been evading me for years.  I am determined to achieve these by my 38th birthday, in 89 days time! I had an angel and a devil moment today when it came to food.  I was an angel by passing up a chocolate cake…

90 Days To Fitness and Freedom – Day 1

90 Days To Fitness and Freedom OK, so it’s 90 days until my 38th Birthday and I thought I would give myself the gift of Fitness and Freedom.  I am taking two goals that I have had for as long as I can remember and committing the next 90 days to achieving them. As a start, I will be documenting this daily and making it as public as possible.  I…
